The History of Crown Holdings Inc


Crown Holdings Inc has a long history of leading the industry with innovative packaging technology. From the time our founder William Painter invented the bottle cap to the ground-breaking SuperEnd™ beverage ends to today’s cutting edge shaping technology, Crown Holdings Inc., has led the way.


Timeline

We owe our success to a legacy of leadership and invention that began in 1892 when our founder, William Painter, invented a better way to package soft drinks and beer. Painter’s vision revolutionized the bottling industry. His ingenuity, and the leadership of those who came after him, helped to build Crown Holdings, Inc. into the world-class company it is today.

Today, Crown Holdings, Inc. manufactures packaging products from 139 plants located in 41 countries. In over 100 years of growth and diversification, we have never lost sight of our core business: continuously improving the quality of our packaging products, while keeping costs as low as possible.



1898-Automation

Painter introduces the first foot-powered, syruper-crowner. A good operator could fill and cap 24 bottles a minute! Painter starts selling crowning equipment and gains retailers support for the new bottle sealing device.



1906-Early Expansion

The revolution in bottling spreads quickly and Crown opens manufacturing plants in Germany, France, the United Kingdom, Japan and Brazil. By the time Painter died in 1906, the Crown Cork & Seal Company of Baltimore had greatly expanded its manufacturing base in Europe, South America and in the Orient.



1927-New Impetus

Charles McManus, an inspired tinkerer who had patented Nepro Cork, an economical substitute for natural cork, merges the New Process Cork Company into Crown Cork & Seal Company, Inc. He consolidates Crown’s operations, bolsters net sales which reach $11 million, and establishes the Crown Holdings, Inc. International Corporation.


1930s-Thriving in Hard Times

Crown Cork & Seal prospers in the thirties, selling half of the world’s supply of bottle caps. In 1936, Crown Cork & Seal acquires the Acme Can Company of Philadelphia and enters the tin can business.



1937-The Crowntainer

McManus perfects the electrolytic tin-plating process and introduces the Crowntainer. This 2-piece drawn, necked-in steel can sealed with a crown is introduced as a quart beer can.


1941 to 1945-The Tin Can Goes to War

Crown Cork & Seal shifts its production to war products and receives a government citation for the development of a gas mask canister. The Company introduces the Kork-N-Seal, the Pour-N-Seal, and the Merit Seal, continuing its prosperous expansion.


1952-Spra-tainer

Crown strengthens its position in the aerosol can business and introduces the Spra-tainer, a lightweight, two-piece no side seam, no top seam aerosol can for the food, personal care, household and insecticide markets.


1957-Turnaround

John Connelly, a former Crown supplier, takes over the presidency at a time when the company is reeling from a series of poor diversification moves and is on the verge of bankruptcy. Connelly pares down the organization and implements stringent economies. In one year, the company is on its way to recovery.


1958-New Headquarters

Crown Cork & Seal moves its corporate headquarters to Philadelphia from Baltimore.


1960-From Beer to Soft Drinks

Recognizing the enormous potential of the soft drink business, Crown Cork & Seal starts designing its equipment specifically to meet the needs of soft drink producers. The company gains considerable market share in the US soft drink market and becomes one of the world’s largest producers of steel aerosol cans.


1969

Crown introduces the Drawn-N-Ironed, a two-piece steel beverage can alternative to the aluminum can, which rapidly becomes a hit product



1970s-Financial Strength

Crown focuses on international growth, particularly in developing countries. Connelly repurchases all of Crown’s remaining preferred stock and applies excess cash to the repurchase of common stock. Earnings-per-share grow above industry averages.

The 360 End™ is ideal for use at venues or events where glass bottles are typically prohibited.
